The UI has changed, but not significantly, u know .. added 2 more home screens, being single touched, removing lots of the service messages, adding cover-flow like to the music player, multitouch support ..etc! but not the 'wow' .. if you need to 'wow' .. quoting nokia: you have to wait for S^4!
I love this phone but I'm scared and excited as well regarding N8's UI performance, this may fail or bring wow to people. I wish sum1 could have a detailed review of the UI performance and the widgets seems like N97 homescreen with 3 panels. Would sum1 at least give list of expected changes of the UI from S^1 to S^3. thanks
I think it would have been better for nokia to release this master piece N8 before WORLD CUP SOCCER starts...
Anonymous, 11 May 2010Why do you need higher res"Why do you need higher res"
Becaquse i have both 5800 and N900, and the res of 5800 is crap, and its same as N8. The N900 however, 800x480, its so much better that if i call it "ok" then 5800/N8 Res has to be classified as "useless". When surfing the web in landscape mode the difference is enormous, most pages fit on the screen direcly with the 800, and dont need to scroll too much up and down with the 480.
Bottom line, my personal experience is that 640x360 sux.
werez the innovation??dey didnt evn bothered abt protecting the camera lens........its aweful...
n8 vs ''Samsung S9000''

Anonymous, 11 May 2010its not in same price class as iphone 4G, and N8 doesnt have a high res display to compete in ... moreyeah whatever! haha, iPhones have their own price class - thats insanely over the top and the least-bang-for-your-buck! haha. Apple is swindling all your money
But on the other hand, the res does seem a little bit unsatisfactory but it is enough. Had to be like that since its 16:9 ratio. Besides its AMOLED so even if the res is low (not that it is low) it means the picture quality will be awesome!
Besides regardless of the res a picture would be a picture in the same 3.5inch screen w/ diff res'es :p
[deleted post]its not in same price class as iphone 4G, and N8 doesnt have a high res display to compete in the higher classes. I dont like anything apple, but still gotta say that N8 is pretty low class, the display is the main problem. Same res as 5800, absolutely not enough, not even close...
You cant throw in a good cam to make up for a display that belongs in 2008. Nokia forgot to turn pages on their calendar when they constructed N8, and more than a few pages. Basically N8 is not on the same page as high end fones, so all we can do is wait for Nokia to release a serious product, coz N8 isnt.
